Photobiology — The science of life and light, 2nd ed.

(2008)
Abstract
Photobiology: The Science of Life and Light, Second edition, is fully updated and offers eight

new chapters for a comprehensive look at photobiology. The chapters cover all areas of

photobiology, photochemistry, and relationship between light and biology, each with up-to-

date references.The chapter authors (of which seven are new) have very different

backgrounds, and have produced a truly cross-disciplinary treatise. The book starts with the

physics and chemistry of light, and how to handle light in the laboratory and measure it in the

field, the properties of daylight, and new uses of light in research. It deals with the evolution

of photosynthesis and with the mechanisms of... (More)

field, the properties of daylight, and new uses of light in research. It deals with the evolution

of photosynthesis and with the mechanisms of its primary steps. Four chapters deal with how

organisms use light for their orientation in space and time: The biological clock and its

resetting by light, the light-dependent magnetic compass, and photoperiodism in animals

and plants. There are also several medically oriented chapters and two chapters specifically

aimed at the photobiology educator. (Less)
